Wireless XBOX using the telco jacks or COAX in the house? Answered
Hi. I have a house built onto the top and into the side of a hill with a sharp grade. To stabilize the construction the contractor was forced to custom pour forms. The layout is a side split with a back split added to the hill portion later. The bottom level has the mechanical room and kids playroom. My son has an XBOX. He wants to play COD. We run an 802.11g router in from the ISP. i have bought an 802.11n router and 802.11n receiver. I also have a spare duplicate of the main 802.11g router. Right now my son is running a network cable from the incoming Internet through two rooms, down the stairs (poured walls) to the XBOX. i want wireless, to get rid of the cable, but the construction geometry and materials don't allow for good reception in the basement...hence the purchase of the 'n' router and transceiver. I have thought of splitting the incoming signal, and tapping into the house's phone network as the basement has RJ and Coax jacks - no gender bender (telco to network) to be found. I have thought of putting the 'n' router in the basement, giving it a static IP and changing the dynamic range on the incoming 'g' router to exclude this static IP. Still, the only way i appear to be able to avoid a wire through my house is to use the telco network inside the walls. Any thoughts? TIA. Bob?
